Chicago: Looking for a quiet, relaxing start!

Jump to last reply

My wife & I are heading to Chicago in September (from Scotland). We will 'do' the city over a fortnight or so but need to recharge the batteries for a few days first.
Can anyone recommend a tranquil hotel/inn/b&b to stay in for 3 or 4 days?
Selection criteria would be:
i) within 1 or 2 hours drive from O'Hare
ii) minimal traffic noise
iii) preferably no children
iv) good breakfasts!
v) close to good walking -- beach / hills etc

Somewhere with its own garden would be great. Somewhere to just relax and NOT have to race from place to place. Suggestions?
